Klopp: There's no room for Nations League in calendar

Adjust Comment Print

Jurgen Klopp has once again slammed the UEFA Nations League as he believes there is too much football at worldwide level.

A number of Liverpool players, including England duo Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, only had a short break over the summer following their excursions at the World Cup and Klopp feels the new Nations League, introduced as a more competitive replacement for global friendlies, only puts a further strain on players.

The worldwide break doesn't appear to have been too kind to the Reds, with the likes of Naby Keita and Sadio Mane picking up injuries.

"At one point we have to think do we want opera every night, or every two months?"

"The Nations League is a good idea but do it in another sport".

Sadio Mane's availability remains uncertain after he had surgery on the fractured thumb he suffered when away with Senegal and was absent from full Liverpool training on Thursday.

Jurgen Klopp has been handed a major boost with the news that Virgil Van Dijk has been declared fit for the trip to Huddersfield on Saturday evening.

Of the three, Guinea worldwide Keita - who was carried off the artificial pitch in Rwanda on the back of a team-mate on Tuesday - is the only one who will definitely miss the trip to Huddersfield. "That's it, pretty much".

"With all the rest, we have to see how it develops", added Klopp, who said he had no issue with the pitch or the method of Keita's departure from it.

Two starts have come his way, one in the League Cup defeat to Chelsea and one in the Premier League win over Southampton-though he was subbed off at the break there. That was his words, not mine.

"They had more possession against Tottenham, maybe people are not interested in that but it's a big step".
